Why Does My Vehicle Need Brake Fluid?

Without brake fluid, your vehicle would not be able to stop when you apply pressure to the brake pedal. Brake fluid moves the various components inside of the vehicle's braking system. The fluid moves the components under high pressure and high temperatures. The non-compressible substance is stored within the brake lines.

When you press on the brake pedal, energy is sent to the brake rotors on each side of your vehicle. The pressure on the wheels reduces your speed. Brake fluid will degrade when it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. The fluid must be routinely drained and replaced with new brake fluid. Most mechanics recommend changing the brake fluid at least once every two years.
